The Complexities of Finance, Simplified

Public data portals aim to provide access to financial information with the collection of data in one convenient place, but the overwhelming nature of that complex data often prevents transparency from being achieved. The Financial Transparency module simplifies things. 

 

Beyond Data to Financial Information

The Financial Transparency module makes it easy for the public to understand revenues and expenditures by organizing and comparing spending throughout schools across the state. Community members can use this knowledge to have informed conversations and ignite change.
